Child Sponsorship Program
Family & Parental Involvement
In order to ensure the success and holistic educational and personal development of the child, the ANCOP Child Education Sponsorship program mandates the active involvement of the child’s parents or guardians in the sponsored child’s day-to-day life. Parents are obliged to participate in school activities of the child, monitor their progress at school, supervise their after-school work at home to make sure the child develops good study habits and devotes time to their homework and school preparation. ANCOP also nurtures the creation and activation of small community groups of parents with sponsored children, to meet regularly, exchange experiences and provide support to each other. These community groups provide a sense of belonging, and group solidarity, resulting in a greater sense of accountability to care for one’s sponsored child, and as well to provide support to other parents in the community.
When a poor person dies of hunger it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.
- St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
